First year head coach Rob Chudzinski says Cleveland Browns have an honest-to-goodness quarterback competition between Brandon Weeden and Jason Campbell. Weeden has taken every first-team rep in training camp, leaving Campbell to work exclusively with the second team. Weeden was excellent in the Browns’ preseason opener (10-of-13 passing for 112 yards and one TD), and figures to start again Thursday against the Detroit Lions.

The Chicago Bears signed running back Curtis Brinkley to a one-year contract on Monday in an attempt to bolster some depth to a position currently dealing with injuries.

Vikings-Bills

Possible No. 1 QB Kevin Kolb came out scrambling and firing one completion after another Tuesday. It was an impressive enough outing for coach Doug Marrone to suggest the seventh-year quarterback is on track to play in Buffalo’s preseason game against Minnesota on Friday.  Kolb had missed eight days of training camp and the Bills’ preseason-opening 44-20 win at Indianapolis on Sunday after slipping on a wet rubber mat in practice Aug. 3. The update wasn’t as positive for receiver T.J. Graham, who was held out of practice a day after straining his groin. Marrone doesn’t expect Graham to return until after the game Friday.

Cowboys-Cardinals

The “Honey Badger” is about to get his first NFL start.Arizona coach Bruce Arians said Tuesday that rookie Tyrann Mathieu will start at free safety in place of injured Rashad Johnson. Mathieu has been a sensation in training camp as he looks to make a comeback after being booted from the LSU team for marijuana use and sitting out football altogether last season.

49ers-Chiefs

Pro Bowl running back Jamaal Charles had his ailing right foot examined by two orthopedic surgeons and they confirmed the Kansas City Chiefs’ diagnosis of a mild strain. It appears unlikely that he will play in Friday night’s preseason game against San Francisco at Arrowhead Stadium. The Chiefs leaned heavily on Charles in their preseason opener last week. He touched the ball on eight of the 14 plays that the No. 1 offense ran on its opening touchdown drive.

Dolphins-Texans

Houston Texans guard Wade Smith is out. Smith has started all 48 games over the past three seasons with the Texans and was a Pro Bowl selection for the first time last year.

It’s early, but the Dolphins might not get the impact they hoped for from their rookie class.

Jaguars-Jets

Jets coach Rex Ryan declined Tuesday to name his starter for Saturday night against the Jacksonville Jaguars, leaving open the possibility he may let the Mark Sanchez-Geno Smith battle continue for a week longer than many expected. Smith was limited to only 14 snaps against the Detroit Lions, completing six of seven passes for 47 yards.

Jag’s Blaine Gabbert’s inability to clear 2 yards per attempt in the Jacksonville Jaguars’ 27-3 preseason loss to the Miami Dolphins last week. Take Monday’s practice report from the Jaguars’ official website for example: “The offense struggled at times in practice, with Gabbert completing about half his passes in 11-on-11 drills and (Chad) Henne completing a little more than half while fumbling twice.” After reading these skipping-record reports for nearly three weeks, the one above can be copied and pasted as a recap of the offense’s performance for the entire training camp.

Colts-Giants

New York Giants safety Antrel Rolle is out, likely for the preseason. A nine-year veteran Rolle is the leader of the secondary. He had a career-high 108 tackles last season and was a constant voice trying to make sure his teammates were on the same page.

Colts played poorly in their 44-20 preseason loss to Buffalo. Coach Chuck Pagano said the starters will play more and they will play better as a team against the New York Giants on Sunday.
